Rheumatologist switched me from Hydrocodone 10mg to Nucynta 75mg & yes it controls pain but overall with side effects(sleepy,dizzy,fatigue,headaches)makes me feel worse. MD says give it time for body to adjust, been 4 months.
They are both addictive and bad for you if taken for an extended period of time. They reek havoc on your entire system. If after 4 months your doctor says give it time for your body to adjust... time for you to adjust and find a new doctor! The best thing to do is find a good pain specialist. I hate to hear about people who suffer needlessly because of ignorant doctors. I sure hope you find a new doctor and pain specialist. Good luck to you!
hi raIll, if i was you i would start looking for another dr. wait till you find a new dr before u ask your present dr to change your meds. if he wont then tell him that you will be looking for a dr that works with you instead of just writing a script and says give it time. that'd bull. 4 months you got patients.this may sound crazy but when my dr retired i asked my pharmacist to recommend a good pain dr.he did and i have been with him ever since. if your good friends with any ask,if your not become friends.
